Oancea’s Opinion

  • On the game physically : “The boys were ready and prepared to perform well against a team that is very good. They performed very well at times. We seemed to take charge of some of the fears we had and replaced them with confidence. Unfortunately, we started slowing down the last 25 minutes, our mindset changed, fatigue set in and we made mistakes on defense and left players open in the box.”
  • On the last goal : “The second goal was a matter of us pushing for a game equalizer and with two minutes left we give up a simple goal on a throw-in.”
  • On the future : “Hopefully we will get healthy and get an added boost from those players at the end of the game. Until then we will keep grinding.”
